USA's foreign trade with Thailand, exports to Thailand and imports from Thailand in November 2020


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

In November 2020 Thailand represented 1.3 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 0.8 % of USA's exports and 1.6 % of imports. In November Thailand was USA's 19. largest foreign trade partner. Most of the value of trade between the countries consists of the import to USA. Amounting trade to worth of $4.3 billion was 12.2 per cent bigger than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with Thailand was $2.4 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Thailand was 18.9 per cent higher than in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $3.4 billion. Major product categories of imports from Thailand were Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), representing 15.3 percent of imports, Sitc764 (telecommunications equipment, n.e.s., and parts, n.e.s., and accessories of apparatus falling within division 76) 11.9 % and Sitc625 (rubber tyres, interchangeable tyre treads, tyre flaps and inner tubes for wheels of all kinds) 7.4 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Thailand declined by 6.0 per cent compared to in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $974 million in November 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)), which represented a share of 13.6 per cent of total exports, Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) 8.6 % and Sitc776 (thermionic, cold cathode or photo-cathode valves and tubes (e.g., vacuum or vapour or gas-filled valves and tubes, mercury arc rectifying valves and tubes, cathode-ray tubes, television camera tubes); diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor dev) 7.4 % of the exports.

Development during January-November 2020

During January-November, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $44.5 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 4.3 percent. During January-November the value of imports was $34.3 billion. The export value was $10.2 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of imports during this period increased by 12.2 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc752 (automatic data-processing machines and units thereof; magnetic or optical readers, machines for transcribing data onto data media in coded form and machines for processing such data, n.e.s.), worth $5.6 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude), worth being $1.1 billion. The value of exports during this period decreased by 15.6 %. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-November remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $24.1 billion. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $18.5 billion.
